About The Role

We are looking for a Senior Web Developer to build the next-generation cryptocurrency platform.
Senior Web Developer responsibilities include leading a team of junior and mid-level developers, refining web-related specifications and resolving technical issues.

To be successful in this role, you should have extensive experience building realtime products such as trading applications, video games, chat apps or any other high throughput applications with websockets or gRPC.

Previous experience in FinTech/Financial Services and crypto would be an advantage, but curiosity, experimentation and empathy for the user experience would be most important. If you have experimented with webassembly, smart contracts, or have used emerging technologies in interesting ways, you'll thrive in our environment.

Our Ideal Candidate

    • An inordinate amount of common sense.
    • Extensive work experience as a Senior Web Developer.
    • Expert knowledge of javascript and HTML/CSS to create delightful experiences and animations.
    • Experience with mockup and UI prototyping tools.
    • Deep understanding of security practices (OWASP, etc.).
    • Interpreting client specifications and identifying platform user requirements.
    • Identify trade-offs and make critical decisions based on technical and business requirements.
    • Creating timeframes and work schedules to meet (and beat) deadlines.
    • Communicating effectively with clients, teams and Senior Management.
    • Updating records and writing reports (standard discipline).
    • Debugging and ensuring software documentation is updated and current.
    • Liaising and syncing with mobile and backend developers.
    • Establishing strong professional relationships with clients and other professionals.
    • Supervising junior web developers, analyzing areas of weakness, and scheduling training sessions as appropriate.
    • Willingness to work overtime when required.
    • Superb interpersonal, and written and verbal communication skills.
    • Passion to perform, and willingness to innovate and succeed.
